Community Health Center Mobile Dental Unit

In 2011, a brand new, state of the art, dental mobile unit was

launched. It is serving school children, homeless shelters,

day cares, rehabilitation centers, health fairs, and other community

sites in Will County. The mobile unit serves those who have

difficulty accessing quality dental services due to difficulties with

transportation or finances. The mobile unit is equipped

with digital x-ray technology, computers and two dental

chairs. “There are thousands of children and adults in Will County who are not getting needed dental care. Families face

transportation and getting time off challenges when trying to take their children to the dentist. The mobile dental unit

helps to solve those issues,” states Dr. Sangita Garg, Chief Dental Officer of the Will County Community Health Center and van

dentist.

 

The mission of the Mobile dental unit is to provide primary & preventive dental

services to the undeserved and low income families. 

The dental staff at Will County Community Health Center

strives to prevent serious dental problems by educating children and parents

about the importance of regular oral care and linkage between oral health,

medical health, and overall well being.
